“A Perfect Stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

A most beautiful riad, wonderful staff and the magnificent Elena looking after every need made this the perfect place to stay in the heart of the Medina. Around the corner from the most interesting Souks and right next to the Cafe Arabe restaurant, Dar Moda is in the perfect location to explore Marrakech. The Riad itself is just stunning with real attention to detail in every respect. Two pools and the most fantastic roof terrace (highest in the Medina it seems) give lots of space to relax and enjoy the beautiful house. We'll be back!

Room Tip: The Black Suite was simply stunning and has a private terrace.

The beautiful Riad Dar Mo'Da is an absolutely marvellous place to stay in the faszinating old Medina of Marrakesch. Perfectly accomodated and kindly treated by the lovely staff, you feel like dreaming, the moment the heavy wooden door opens and wonderful Elena Masera welcomes you warmly as a good old friend. There are two small and refreshing pools, one downstairs, one on the top, where extended breakfasts are served. I recommend spending sunrise and sunset on the top roof terrace, the highest in town, and enjoy the unique surround view. It definitely is the most magnificant place to be!!

Elena Masera, manager of this stunning Riad is a perfectionist who ensures every needs of her clients are attended to no matter how small. She ensures breakfast every day is different, she ensures dinner at the Riad if required is delicious with only the freshest ingredients. Her staff share the same dedication. This stylish Milanese woman knows and loves Marrakech and Morocco. She will help with personal tours, shopping expeditions and of course restaurants. Her guests leave with every intention of returning to enjoy her hospitality and this magnificent Riad.
The Riad is furnished and decorated beautifully with a contemporary touch. It looks beautiful and it is divinely comfortable. A real haven, we adored it!

Room Tip: All rooms are good although 2 have balconies.

we have been staying at Dar Mo'da for 5 nights with our 3 children (10, 8 ,3). We found a wonderful place, the perfect balance to the frenzy Medina... Elena and her staff just made our stay memorable and enjoyable! Breakfast was simply gorgeous and we always had the option to stay in for diner...
We could have enjoy a diner without the kids, sitted by adorable staff. No wonder my 3 years old daughter was calling this place home after 2 days.
On top of that, the roof top terrace is simply amazing and will give you this incredible feeling of quietness overlooking the entire Medina.

Room Tip: roof top room was the perfect match for our 2 oldest kids...

I had heard some very positive stories about Dar Mo'da from friends, so where better to go when in desperate need for rest and relaxation? Decided to stay a week, on my own, and the place even exceeded my expectations. Elena is an excellent host, running her socks off to ensure all your wishes are met, knows Marrakech like her backpockets and is enthusiastic to share her knowledge with her guests. The entire staff provides an impeccable service. As soon as I opened the door of my room in the morning, they came running with my espresso. No need to ask, thanks Hussein! Not in the mood to go out for dinner in the evening? No problem, the ladies prepared an excellent couscous, served in the lovely dining room and with an extraordinary attention to details, including fresh rose petals on the table!
I stayed in the terrace room which is not as big as the suites, but literally one step away from the terrace with plenty of comfy sunbeds and cushions, excellent for soaking up some sunshine or reading a book in a shady corner. I had been in Marrakech a few times before, so didn't feel the urge to out much and throw myself in the hussle and bussle of the medina. Why should I, when the alternative was to have myself pampered in this little piece of paradise?

I spent a week at Riad Dar Mo'da with a small group of friends. I must confess that I was totally charmed by this little Riad turned into a gorgeous, luxurious, welcoming bed and breakfast. Elena, the manager of the Riad, will pamper you, with her warm personality, her intelligence and her absolute understanding of what her clients want to experience in Marrakech. The suites are just beautiful, each with their own personality, and the staff is polite and extremely helpful. It's truly one of the best place you'll ever go.

What marks Dar Mo'da out from so many 'posh' riads in Marrakech is that it manages to provide luxury in a way that feels completely natural and relaxed. The rooms and public spaces are well thought through, stylish and comfortable and with great attention to detail - and Elena is a fantastic host...friendly, knowledgeable, entertaining and cultured in equal measure. There's no pomposity, no showing off, no standing on ceremony - just a hard-working, well-run team focusing on what matters - your relaxation and enjoyment of this wonderful city. The location is second to none, and the views are fabulous. What more could you need?
